Merry Christmas!

As you can tell by my lack of blogging, I've been busy. The new job, preparing for Christmas and general family stuff seem to be a priority. I hope everyone has a blessed Christmas!

CAIR and the ummah help the FBI

Hand-shakes and back-slaps all around CAIR’s Washington DC office. A media advisory whine-o-gram was issued on Wednesday announcing the unindicted terror coconspirator press conference regarding the missing muslim “yutes”. CAIR used this as a springboard to illustrate their patriotism, pointing to their cooperation with law enforcement and the FBI specifically.

I have quite a few thoughts on this “dog and pony show” CAIR, MAS, MPAC and imam Jahori abdul-Malik put on for the press. The families are called “courageous” for coming forward to report their missing “yutes”, the same suspects arrested in Pakistan on terror charges. Prior to the arrests, CAIR helped obtain legal counsel for these families while working with the FBI, to preserve their civil rights. This turned out to be an opportunity for CAIR to appear cooperative by a mere phone call to authorities. Nihad Awad has viewed the video and was “disturbed” by its content. Awad goes on to admit “problems” exist in the ummah and announced a major campaign to refute the misuse of koran verses and certain "grievances" in the muslim world. This campaign, of course, involves education. No details were given on what this would encompass or who is involved in teaching the new islamic world view to muslims residing in America.

In closing, these muslim leaders called for tolerance and not to rush to judgment. Citing the “cottage industry” who’ll seek to exploit this case and marginalize muslims. It seems to me, the ummah needs no help in perpetuating the bad PR around the world.

5 DC area muslim men missing

This from IPT.

"Federal investigators are searching for a Howard University dental student and four other missing Muslim men reported missing from the Washington, D.C. area, the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) has learned. There is concern they may have been sent abroad to train for jihad. The five were last seen November 29.

The identities of two of the missing men, Howard student Ramy Zamzam and Waqar Khan, have been mentioned in online postings, including a Facebook page that was set up Monday for friends to offer their support. Some of those pages, however, appear restricted to friends and associates.
It is not clear where the men are believed to have gone, but an informed source told the IPT that
at least one left behind a farewell video."

And we all know what happens after those farewell, martyrdom videos are made.....

Grand Jury seeks CAIR records

This just in from the IPT. "Although no formal statement has been made by law enforcement, FBI agents reportedly issued a grand jury subpoena last week seeking internal CAIR documents that are the subject of an ongoing civil lawsuit."

More on the CAIR here.

Will keep you posted if and when a whine-o-gram is issued.

RoP hijacking dry run

Debbie Schlussel has the details regarding another airline hijacking dry run on AirTran flight 297, Atlanta to Houston. This is becoming all to common and the faithful are emboldened by our weakness. America needs to wake up to the threat we face here at home.
